EEOC RIN: 3046-AA93 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: ●Revisions to Procedures for Complaints of Employment Discrimination Filed Against Recipients of Federal Financial Assistance 
Abstract: The EEOC has a joint regulation with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to explain how Federal agencies that grant financial assistance or revenue sharing funds should process complaints of employment discrimination subject to various EEO statutes if the complaints allege discrimination that is also prohibited by title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended (Title VII), or the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA).1 This proposed rule would amend this joint regulation to revise the definitions of certain terms and clarify the procedures for handling these complaints. The revisions would create consistency between this regulation and two other coordination regulations (29 CFR part 1640 and 29 CFR part 1641), as well as the recently revised Memorandum of Understanding between EEOC and the Department of Labor's Office Federal Contract Compliance Programs. This MOU addresses the investigation and processing of complaints or charges alleging employment discrimination that may fall within the jurisdiction of title VII and/or Executive Order 11246. ____________ 1 The relevant EEO statutes are: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, title IX of 1972, the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972, as amended (the revenue sharing act), and provisions similar to title VI and title IX in Federal grant statutes to the extent they prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Statement of Need: This regulation was identified as needing revision during a retrospective analysis of existing rules that took place in 2011 under Executive Order 13563. It is identified in EEOC's Final Plan for Retrospective Analysis of Existing Regulations available at:

Alternatives: The EEOC will consider all alternatives offered by the public commenters.

Anticipated Costs and Benefits: These procedures govern the agencies' internal handling of complaints of employment discrimination and do not impose any regulatory costs on employers or complainants. The revised procedures, however, will provide a net benefit to stakeholders and the agencies by creating consistency between this coordination regulation and others.

Risks: The proposed changes do not affect risks to public health, safety, or the environment.
